Example text

The courses are to be tested at a number of teacher education colleges in each country and eventually they will become compulsory in the training of teacher educators in the Nordic area.

3 National policy on IT E&T in schools In the Botswana Government White Paper (Botswana Government, 1994) on the Report of the National Commission on Education (NCE, 1993) the need to acquire computer literacy in secondary schools for both teachers and students was recognized. The White Paper made the following policy statements: • that computers should be provided at the proposed resource centres for primary schools; • that each student of a junior secondary school should take a basic computer awareness course; • that all senior secondary school teachers should acquire computer literacy and the schools should be allocated enough computers to enable all students to develop computer skills.

The cost effectiveness cannot be accurately accounted for but there is no doubt that software development paid for once and coupled with costs of translation, is far cheaper than developing costs multiplied by five Nordic countries. When you add to that what you may gain from cooperation over the borders with no need to convert software and even the fact that the same tools may be used for development of educational software, the advantages of the model chosen become even more apparent. There are undoubtedly cases where national workshops in priority areas are required and in such cases the Committee has given the other member countries the opportunity to take part with a limited number of participants per country through a separate agreement.
